One of the top "mental game" issues sports parents identify is bullying in youth sports, according to Patrick Cohn, a mental game expert and co-founder of Kids’ Sports Psychology.

"This is one of the top challenges sports parents write us about," says Cohn, who, along with his sister, Lisa Cohn, operates Kids’ Sports Psychology, which offers members articles, videos, audios, e-books, and other resources to help young athletes improve their confidence and success in sports.

"Parents complain that their kids’ confidence is hurt by bully coaches and by young athletes who harass, intimidate, threaten or exclude their athletes," says Lisa Cohn, an award-winning parenting writer. "Often, kids drop out of sports as a result of bullying, and miss out on all the social, emotional, and physical benefits of youth sports."
